Lots. I'm not entirely sure about a guitar, but I had to pay VAT on some stuff from the US not so long ago.

Sounds like VAT(17.5%).

Where'd you get that? I wanted to get a paintball gun but Im not sure if its legal or will be stopped at customs because it comes ina big shiny box that says "PAINTBALL GUN".

Im in Ireland, so should have similar laws regarding this, as you in the UK.

yeah it was fine on the packaging it actualy said Ariakon Paintball Gun and showed the value etc. Its fine, but you cant get gasses shipped from abroad i know that much. I got it from eBay.

Shouldnt be a problem an you can make a good saving, just bare in mind the extra money you pay when it arrives. But you cant buy ariakon in UK so it was great for me either way

When we ordered some stuff from Hollister, we never actually recieved the UK import tax bill. I guess we slipped through the radar. Shwicked.
